The original Wikileaks – Before the Internet

Breaking and entering for truth and justice


On this day in 1971, a little-known act of heroism by a handful of everyday people revealed the existence of an FBI political squad (COINTELPRO.)

This FBI operation, which still exists but without the name, was involved in a wide range of illegal activities in the service of suppressing dissent.

The story of how they were exposed is amazing. Don’t miss it.

For the history-minded, this took place March 8, 1971.
